Name That Bug #1

Image of mysterious little white things on leaves
What are these? Gregory Canyon, Boulder, Colorado, USA. May 20, 2012.

I’m about to head up to Wyoming to camp for the weekend, but before I go, here’s a little entomological mystery for the approximately two people who might be reading this. I took this photo this spring up the in foothills around Boulder.

a) What are these?
b) Which plant are they on?
c) Who made them?

Hint: if you get what and which, you’re two-thirds of the way to who (which is how I was able to identify them). I’m using “bug” in the broad, non-scientific sense here, so they may or may not be created by insects. You can click on the photo for a larger image.

I’ll be back Sunday with the answers!
